will be smaller. george h.w. bush and george w. bush won't be here. there have been pres debts where presidents in the past haven't made it. george h.w. bush just got out hospital, which is why they won't be here. mitt romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about ta
. that is the problem. the democrats are split. >> bret: remember when president george w. bush won re-election and he went to a news conference and he was going to expand capital to get social security reform through. he wants gun control through. can he do that much like president george w. bush promised to do with social security? president bush didn't. he ran in a brick wall. >> he said that he had political capital in the aftermath of this. there were discussions about the fiscal cliff. believing that they cited with him and not republican. this is imposed on him. this is because of the inaction with gun control after gabrielle giffords, the congressman from arizona was shot. now, i'm glad that you put hit the way, you will see the outside forces engaged in a political campaign. there are polls today that there has been a shift and there are more americans that are open to the idea. even people who are gun owner owners. they come back for the background checks. the idea that anybody gets a gun should be educated on how to use the gun. closing the gun show loophole. these are things that especiall
with the outcome. democrats complain that obama caved. because the president's plan allows george w. bush's tax cuts to become permanent. for those making less than $400,000 a year. these democrat critics fear that obama's second term instead of being quote, unquote bold will be quote, unquote cautious as his first term. and on the right, republicans moan and grown and say that -- groan and say that obama is demeaning in the way he deals with house speaker john boehner. hold on, says columnist rockman. we expect too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in contrast has had to work with a narrow democratic majority in the senate and with an opposition party, the republicans in control of the house for the two years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year
to elbow their way to the front. for george h.w. bush that's a great example. another great example, william f. buckley. he had liberal friends. in fact, he campaigned for liberals that were his friends even though he knew it upset some on the conservative side. for william f. buckley, it wasn't a blood sport. >> to end this block, to counter it just a bit, and i'm sorry but it has the added value of being true, the president does need to reach out.agree. but he has, and it hasn't worked. so when he does it again, the republicans actually need to show up. >> you just quoted henry kissinger. there is hope. >> that's like me going jogging for ten minutes and saying afterwards, you know what i didn't lose 30 pounds. no i'm dead serious. they have stuck their toe in the water. that is it. when you still have democrats, democratic senators that run the senate andrea mitchell complaining that they've never been to camp david, the president doesn't call them they don't go over to the white house, then it's time for him to be more aggressive about this. >> two points quic
of them will not be here today. george w. bush, and george h.w. bush. the 88-year-old just got home from the hospital because of bronchitis and infection. and his son, george w., said he wanted to be with his father. but his dad said, when you leave the stage, stay off the stage. that's liberating. >> president carter, in september, set the record for the longest retirement in presidential history. it had been held by hubert hoover. now, jimmy carter's been ex-president for 32 years. and what he has done with that, as well. you see the crowds crossing pennsylvania avenue. everyone gathering. the president will be coming to the capitol, starting around 10:40. >> we are told, people are given much clearer directions this year about where they go, when they can cross. that security has asked that apps are guiding everybody. people were stuck in a tunnel four years ago, and couldn't get to their destination. >> 2 million people came to the mall. under 1 million this time around. you see the crowd right there. the president and the first lady are inside the white house right now. earlier this
about george w. bush, they're shredding the constitution tonight. >> that was a lie when they said it about george w. bush and it's a lie when they're saying it about anthony scalia. what scalia said was it protects america's right to constitutional arms. >> if you listen to the president, you would think that's the view of all of them. >> of course. >>> we'll move onto the debt ceiling with the government on pace to run out of money by mid-february. >> yesterday, the president warned republican leaders raising the nation's borrowing limit was non-negotiable and congress aimed to use it as lever eventuallyiage for deep s. >> while i'm willing to find middle ground to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate. not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect or ransom in exchange for not crashing the america economy. the financial well-being of the american people is

(applause) for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. (cheers and applause) we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle-class. we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal is the star that guides us still just as it guided our forebearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall, just as it guided all those men and women-- sung and unsung-- who left footprints along this great mall to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone. to hea
but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> well she has done -- she is a, the most popular person in america just about. she has firmed up the sense of this family as a very responsible family that people can relate to, which was not always going to
under george w. bush -- >> 19 times. they voted 19 times. some $4 trillion they raised the debt ceiling 19 times under bush. without a peep, without a squeal. regular, standard votes. >> bill: no demands. >> no demands at all. >> bill: no unless you do this, we're going to shut it down. just 19 times. and now it is pure politics with barack obama. and i thought the president did a very good job yesterday of calling them out. we played this clip earlier. the republicans have two choice. do the responsible thing and pay our bills or -- >> send this country into a tailspin. it will be on their heads. when you have outside republicans saying you can't play these kinds of games you're going to pay for it politically, at the end of the day, i don't know how many of them are going to be able to. >> bill: ben bernanke from the fed telling congress hey, get serious. get serious. raise the debt ceiling and stop playing games. i don't know igor. got a lot to keep track of. somehow you manage to stay on top of all of it. >> great team over at think progress. >> bill: thinkprogress.org. thank you so

by refusing to raise the debt ceiling, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house over
that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a m
: many people are saying that this president could use george w. bush on the issue of immigration because he is that as a key domestic agenda item on for his second term and he felt pretty good president bush help him on immigration with republicans? pick it'm sure he could is a question of whether he wants to play that role. there are plenty of other surrogates who could play this role, and the most important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on boar
two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady wil
as popular as many other presidents and he's a little bit higher than george w. bush was going into his second term, but it really reflects that and when you look at the breakdown of the job approval rating and what people like, he's okay, just over the 50% mark in those polls, but personally, they like him a lot and that's playing a lot into how the president is pushing his agenda, how he's framing his second term and it also makes a huge difference when it comes to dealing with congressional republicans who are on the other side of that popularity. >> we'll talk about this later because it seems as if based on some of the heatings that have happened over the past few days and perhaps congressional republicans realize that people really like this president and they do seem to like him a whole lot. ed o'keefe, senate majority leader, harry reid has not come out and endorsed the president's proposals. tom, also not coming out, how is the president going to be able to get this legislation through congress if you can't seem to get some top-ranking democrats onboard. >> that's the biggest c

are entering a rare moment in history. president obama faces as president clinton and george w. bush before him the challenge of giving a second inaugural message to the american people. what advice would you give him? >> i would say be very conciliatory. that is what -- whether he feels it or not, that is what i think he has to do. if he is not it will be an insight whether or not he is experiencing that second term malady that many presidents experience, hubris, there are too many rhetorical flourishes, these is thinking about his lebanon si after gibes that he wants to do battled in 2014 and take complete power and move this country further down the road he wants it to go. i would watch for that. is it conciliatory. >> heather: i want to take a look at favorability ratings. president obama is down as he heads into second term, it's 48% compared to president bush who was 57% as he entered second term. president clinton down slightly and president reagan who was up 51 to 64%. so brad, does president obama face an uphill battle from here? >> he does. all the more reason to be conciliatory. we h
reminiscent of what george h.w. bush did. health and mental records. these powers are within the presidency, also to put somebody standard head of the a.t.f., and a lot of funding for the a.t.f., which is a lagging agency. they'll be charged with enforcing these gun laws. by strengthening the a.t.f., he is going to be doing some strengthening. >> cenk: when you block over countries from importing more guns here, it helps the n.r.a., because they represent american gun manufacturers, gives them a bigger monopoly. the check on mental health, if that's the only thing they do, that was an n.r.a. proposal, too. it's not nearly good enough. that's not the only thing they are proposing, and i want to be clear on that. if they settle, it sucks. >> that's the important thing to extinguish. it's not the only thing they are proposing, but the only thing george h.w. bush did on guns a transparent way of saying we are helping american gun manufacturers. this is the sail time as you're trying to fight guns here, fighting guns coming from overseas. rand paul in the is that the the senate is against this,
guarantee you that had anybody invoked the daughters of president george w. bush in a similar ad attacking him, folks on the right would be just as upset. it makes no sense at all. >> i'm sure you're right about that. rollland, what about the fact that politicians use their kids when they want to politically all the time. remember the famous picture of chelsea clinton after the monica lewinsky affair walking between her parents to the helicopter? or hold on, let me just finish. and this time before the dnc when the white house released a picture of the president with his two daughters snuggling on the couch, there it, watching michelle obama. look, they use their children for political purposes hen they want. to. >> first of all, walking with chelsea to the helicopter, they were going on vacation. so what are they supposed to do, take her to another helicopter or through the back door somewhere? >> it was the hand-holding and connecting them, rollland. >> okay, so what? if there was a photo and there were no hand-holding then, it's okay? seriously. that is not the same as putting an ad out
in this conversation. i can guarantee you that had anybody invoked the daughters of president george w. bush in a similar ad, folks on the right would be just as upset. >> what about the fact that politicians use kids when they want to politically all the time. remember can chelsea clip ton walking between her parents to the helicopter after the monta lewinsky affair. or this time when the white house released a picture of the president with his two daughters snuggling on the coach. they use their children for political purposes when they want to. >> walking to the helicopter, they are going on vacation. what are they supposed to do, take her to another helicopter? >> it was the hand holding and connecting them, roland. >> so what. if it was a photo and no hand holding, then it's okay. that is not the same as putting an add out where you are mentioning the president's daughters. it makes no sense. again, if you are the nra, you don't have to actually do that. you don't have to go that far. you would have to go to chicago and say, how many armed guards are there in chicago schools where the p
democrats were in the minority and threatening to filibuster against george w. bush's judicial nominees, their leader, harry reid, had some kind things to say about the tactic. >> the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government. right now the only check on president bush is the democrats' ability to voice their concern in this body, the senate. if the republicans roll back our rights in this chamber, there will be no check on power. the radical right wing will be free to pursue anything they want. >> now the shoe is on the other foot. i asked larry crane to discuss the double standard. 700,000 workers and many industries including media and telephone data services and health care. but that's just his day job. larry co hen is also a leader of the democracy initiative, a coalition as progressive and varied as the naacp, common cause, the sierra club, greenpeace, jobs with justice and the afl-cio. along with an affiliated campaign called fix the senate now, they are working hard to change the filibuster rules. take a look at their ad. >> as climate change thr
all of our presidents were there, including george h.w. bush and george w. bush and i can tell you firsthand that there were several boos in the audience not just for george w. bush, and h.w. bush, but for barbara bush and lawyer a bush. i don't know if we are at less of a divide. president obama will set the tone today. that may be a foreshadowing of things to come as he goes into his second term and they remain at loggerheads. joining us throughout the day brit hume and chris wallace are with us here on the set. let me ask you about that. it was an unfortunate event, the because, i can tell you i heard them and they were loud and it was an unfortunate moment. are we in less of a partisan moment now. >> i don't think so. it goes to one of two pieces of clearly unfish eurbd business frounfinished business, to sue night the count kraoe which has not occurred. we are more divided than before. and get the economy on a surround recovery to get out of a recession that we've had. the pieces of business hangover the president. he has proven that you can get reelected in a weak economy, wh
with us. >> thank you. >> former president george w. bush and his father, former president george h.w. bush, aren't attending this inaugural. president -- former president bill clinton and jimmy carter are. we are waiting to see president clinton. stand by for that. also taking a closer look at the downside of winning another four years of the white house. it doesn't always go so well. the second-term curse, as some call it. that's coming up as well. first, though, inaugural flashback. >> let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. >> we all remember the phrase the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. but even more important than the phrase was the whole attitude that fdr had. he projected optimism and projected forward movement. people felt that's the mystery of leadership, that somehow the depression they were suffering, they weren't going to be alone anymore. they had a leader who was going to take care of it. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they h
including a republican president, george h.w. bush, has ordered executive orders tightening gun control restrictions. >> yes. >> megyn: how far can president obama go? >> well, it's a great question, megyn. the statute on which george h.w. bush relied said that the president could ban importation into the u.s. of weapons that were not, quote, suitable for sporting purposes, closed quotes. and left up to the president and his advisors to determine what that means, suitable for sporting purposes. george h.w. bush, himself a hunter and throughout his career, candidly, a defender of second amendment rights tightened up the meaning for suitable for sporting purposes so as to exclude from importing into the u.s. you could own it in the u.s. if you somehow got it. if you're a dealer here, couldn't bring it. if you're a seller in another country, couldn't sell it in the u.s. and guns determined to have purposes other than sporting. this is an example of an area of governmental authority where the president has discretion. president obama, and that was 1968 statute from the lbj years, it's still
this because long term the republican party has to fix this at the national level. >> george w. bush tried to address this head on. what do you think about the controversy now? >> well, frankly, i think that you can look at both parties and find things you don't like. in the republican party it's extremely small sliver. i suspect there's people in the democratic party that have some very old views. i'm disappointed that secretary powell would only look in one direction and that's the republicans. i think there's a hostility in much of the liberal wings of the political party towards organized religion. i think it's intolerance of the left twashd people of good faith on the right and that worries me. i wish colin powell had talked about that as well. i wish colin powell had talked about the implications of chunk hagel talking about the jewish lobby that intimidates people. he said, make the jews pay. colin powell could have talked about that and whether that was a dark strain or is his focus only on when republicans act wrong? chuck hagel did, too, in these circumstances. it's a topic worth
